Just because I'm a natural-born skeptic, I find myself shaking my head and grumbling under my breath every time the weatherpeople promise horrific ice/wind/mud storms. I mean, c'mon, doesn't anybody remember last fall, when the Mother of All Hurricane Seasons was proclaimed to be nigh? (It's since been pushed back to next fall, naturally. More time to stock up on batteries and duct tape now, right?) It was bad enough when every other night gave us a new level of Terror Alertedness; now we've got Scary Weather Alertedness to keep us in a perpetual state of media-fueled paranoia.
So personally, I kind of doubt that much disastrous is going to happen here in H-town. I could be wrong, but really, it's just some cold wind and rain -- no hurricane, no blizzard, no tsunami in sight. That said, it seems fairly likely that 90% of Houston will stay safely locked indoors tonight, which is why David C., SCR contributor and maestro of the excellent-excellent-excellent local music blog/site Houston Calling has decided to cancel tonight's show at The Proletariat.
Sad, I know, particularly because it promised to be a damn good one, with Arthur Yoria, Mansion, and Blades. But Ma Nature has decreed that it ain't happenin', folks, so tonight's a night to get cozy on the couch with some Netflix and a bottle of Jameson, instead (that's what I'll be doing, at least). We'll be sure to let you know when David reschedules his little soirée -- yours truly managed to get off the couch long enough to get to the first one, and it was very cool.
At any rate, stay safe, and watch out for panicked drivers who forget how to steer as soon as raindrops start to fall...
